KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 2 — The federal government needs to step in and suspend all licenses issued to export bauxite until it can implement regulations to deal with the allegedly rampant pollution caused by the industry, Kuantan MP Fuziah Salleh said today.

The PKR lawmaker claimed that everything from Kuantan’s air to its water supply and physical environment have been contaminated by the red taint of bauxite mining since it took off in a big way sometime last year.
